Modern oldtimer

In ancient times this form of travel was less comfortable than today.
Now it is an attraction for maybe especially people with urban daily living.
Often toddler families or grandparents on holiday with grandchildren.
The speed is in sensible steps, so there is time to enjoy the surroundings
– the horses are experienced and usually decide which speed when to take a break.

Slow relax biking would be a lot faster, but holidays are holidays these people says..
